Walking into the unknown

I taught it good to declare the signs and wonders
that the Most High God has worked for me.
How great are His signs,
And how mighty His wonders!
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And His dominion is from generation to generation

Daniel 4:2-3 NKJV

Season's Greeting 

Life in the Unknown world continues… Welcome to the world of walking into unknown places and life is no different. Yet we seem to be surprised at what lies ahead.

What is happening now has happened before.

Nothing is new under the sun.

The story continues…

Centering her mind, she let go and let the wave of unconsciousness filled her entire body. She saw his hand relax and with slow movement she was on the floor. She needed this to be the last time as the wave of heat left her body. 

Regaining her composition, she centered her mind to a conscious state as he moved to the far left. 

What was her plan? As her body starts to receive the heat and movement in hands and feet. 

She could hear movement downstairs and knew she needed to keep him busy if they were to defeat both of them. Where was he? 

Fluttering her eyes, to a dark cloud covering everything. Her heart skipped a beat then began to pound. How did you know?

Welcome back, sleeping beauty! I have my ways and  I needed you gone a little bit while I got everything ready, in the blink of an eye the room changed. 

She glanced at his hands. 

He frowned, as he remembered. With this Totem we will be able to do so much…

If you had said yes, then you would be part of this…

 As Fulrose entered with Nwe

Hey! Said Nwe guess we both fall into the trap

Figure that. Well what can we say?

You can say we will find a way!

You have the sword? 

Yes, but for how long? What is this place? 

This is Fulrose’s hometown, she killed an entire generation when she followed Athen in the tunnel. Trying to recreate the place requires the Totem and you. 

Sorry! you are part of the plan. 

Thank you, but I doubt that is all they need. 

Shifting her gaze back in the direction outside where both had disappeared. You are right, but we need to find a way out. 

What do you suggest? 

Help me up and it will be a while before they get back so we can find a way out of this. This is a land that cannot be recreated 

As they stepped out into the darkness…

What can she do? Searching for clues to get out of this place. Because Athen thinks she is the answer he needed. Because Fulrose has some crazy notion that she can recreate this place. Because they were both crazy. 

Nwe sighed. What did she do to deserve this much attention to herself? 

Cassa gave a low laugh. From what I know so far about Athen, she is not the first. She will not be the last. 

They reached the end leading into a tunnel.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I seem to like the short story in the moment 🙂

This is a journal of imaginative mind, fiction and also not much editing letting the words flow. Come back next week to see what happens. For as humans we need to be creative, use imagination and be the best version of ourself. Just like our Father wants us to be.

Who knows the mind of a human, only God!

I do love the Lord and I love that you took the time to read my blog. Bless you.

Have a wonderful day 🙂

Walking into the unknown

' Do you not know? Do you not hear? 
Has it not been told to you since the very beginning? 
Have you not understood from the time the earth’s foundations were made? 
He is the one who sits on the earth’s horizon; its inhabitants are like grasshoppers before him. 
He is the one who stretches out the sky like a thin curtain, and spreads it out like a pitched tent. 
He is the one who reduces rulers to nothing; he makes the earth’s leaders insignificant. 

“To whom can you compare me? Whom do I resemble?” says the Holy One. 
Look up at the sky! Who created all these heavenly lights? 
He is the one who leads out their ranks; he calls them all by name. 
Because of his absolute power and awesome strength, not one of them is missing.'

Isaiah 40:21-23,25-26

Yes the Lord is Incomparable to anything we can imagine
Take time to look around and give God glory 
No one can ever compare to our God
to Father and Saviour of our Lord Jesus

I thank my God that He took time to create us 
He took time to renew our minds 
He took time to give us a new life
Above all we have an ethernal life 
In Christ Jesus
He is good

Life in the Unknown world continues… Welcome to the world of walking into unknown places and life is no different. Yet we seem to be surprised at what lies ahead.

What is happening now has happened before.

Nothing is new under the sun.

The story continues…

Cassa’s stomach clenched with anxiety as she watched the totem move towards Athan slowly. She glanced at Nwe and Folrose in an effort to draw attention but only she can see the movement and the battle going on between herself and the totem. 

She directed all her attention to the totem moving it in a sixty degree angle. Athan eyed her, and her effort to move it further towards herself. 

Don’t you dare try anything, she taught as she looked at him. I might not have any experience or an assistant but I can assure you that I am a quick learner and willing to do anything. And I cannot lose this to you right now.

After the winding of  the waves from one angle to another, the tide turns suddenly as it moves into her hands. With relief as she clutched hold moving slowly to the others. As Athen disappeared into the darkness leaving them bewildered at the turn of events.

In an attempt to follow, Nwe disappeared into the darkness followed by Folrose. As they got close to the darkness and it swallowed him. 

Do you know where he is gone? Asked Folrose. 

I can only guess the underground we are building together. Did you see that totem was fighting to return to the owner? As Cassa whispered. I bet we can find him by allowing it to lead us to him.

That will be dangerous and also a trap as Nwe took hold of the totem. Anything belonging to him is not to be trusted. 

Well what do you suggest? We wait until he comes back?

Cassa shrugged, he is not coming back and I get the feeling that we are not going to have it easy either or like it whatever he gets up to. Now before we head out in search of him, I suggest we all take a rest and prepare for tomorrow. We will need all the strength. 

As she strode back to the place they came from, grabbing the totem, Nwe watched her closely. There was sureness in her stride and she also shows no signs of fear or anxiety seen earlier. 

Cassa collapsed on the sofa at the very end of the room overlooking the windows. She needs to regroup in her mind, the recent movement of energy to have control of the totem has taxed her and left her drained. Nwe sat next to her and as Folrose looked around the room. 

With her eyes closed, taken into another realm. As Amiya appeared, you have to leave right now. A striked flashed as she got closer and a shield was raised up. What is this? 

An ambush, as Nwe stepped out of the shadows. Cassa turned around full circle seeing the shield surrounding them.

See I knew you will try to come in the shadows of her mind. As the images shifted from Amiya to Athen and back again. 

Athen! The images stopped changing and she stared in horror at the error she could have made a minute ago.

Walking into Unknown

For I considered all this in my heart, so that I could declare it all: 
that the righteous and the wise and their works are in the hand of God. 
People know neither love nor hatred by anything they see before them. 

All things come alike to all: 

One event happens to the righteous and the wicked; 
To the good, the clean, and the unclean; 
To him who sacrifices and him who does not sacrifice. 
As is the good, so is the sinner; 
He who takes an oath as he who fears an oath.

Ecclesiastes 9:1-2

Life in the Unknown world continues… Welcome to the world of walking into unknown places and life is no different. Yet we seem to be surprised at what lies ahead.

What is happening now has happened before.

Nothing is new under the sun.

The story continues…

The sound of water dripping from a tap echoed down the passage, followed by a grasp of pain. 

This was not usual as Fulrose gazed at Nwe in alarm. Nwe frowned as the dripping was now a distant sound. Looking ahead at the doorway ahead. Taking a long deep breath, she grasped the handle as the door opened slowly, creaking loudly to wake the dead.

She glanced at Nwe and grinned. Relieved no one insight to see them, and now more curious than scared, Nwe strode forward and looked inside. 

Three figures were frozen in position, recognising Athen was holding the dagger glowing brighter than normal, his expression changed from surprise to anger. With a swift movement, Cassa struggled to breath with the dagger held to her throat. Athen’s eyes flickered as they moved closer.

Don’t step any closer or she dies! 

Frozen at the intensity in his voice. Nwe considered… what if…? Don’t do anything stupid

He will kill her if we step any closer. Okay …

Drop the sword and step back!

Do you think I am going to let you get away with this, said Nwe

Well you have a choice, moving closer. Carefully laying down the sword and moving back. As Cassa dropped to the floor. 

Okay, did you see the whole thing? Said Nwe.

Well this is a lot to carry around and how long has this vision been playing in your head?

As both Cassa and Athen appeared and enter the house. Is this your memory asked Folrose.

No this is not, they are wearing different clothes and also Athen is at the back this time. 

Well we have an advantage… You have the sword and they both have the daggers. You now know the house from all your visions.

Yes, you are right. I did see a back door and I suggest we use that. He will be expecting us through the door. 

Yes! He does. But…. 

Close the door behind you, as Cassa entered. Athen hurried away.

As the door shut, looking around, Cassa took it all in, open space, to the left was an empty shelf and out of character with the room. Something odd about this room as she lost sight of Athen. Why this house, this room, the empty space is perfect to dance in. 

A sound as she looked up…

Walking into the unknown

'And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. 
Your love has given me much joy and comfort, my brother, for your kindness has often refreshed the hearts of God’s people.'

Philemon 1:6-7 NLT
Sembehun, Sierra Leone

Life in the Unknown world continues… Welcome to the world of walking into unknown places and life is no different. Yet we seem to be surprised at what lies ahead.

What is happening now has happened before.

Nothing is new under the sun.

The story continues…

What do you think we can get from here? Said Fulrose

Well it is not, but this is exactly where I want to end all this on my own terms. It has been long and someone has to let go of the rope. Nwe admitted

So it is a trap? 

Yes …

and why didn’t you not let me in on it or Cassa? 

She looked thoughtful. Athan can read Cassa’s intentions and emotions, not sure if he can read the mind but I want her to make a choice. 

So you think she will come with him? 

Yes but it should be willing not compulsion, for him to get here and use her as the shield. I am counting on him doing that. 

Well we better get down and hide or something? 

She nodded.. thinking of the first day she had walked into the cave. 

It was not a coincidence that she had walked past and seen the place. She doesn’t believe in coincidences. She felt a pang of guilt as she had taken Nwe with her afterward to see the place, and knowing what was about to come….She could not see at the moment only the adventure and excitement. 

“About two months ago, I knew this was dangerous but never said anything when you followed. I didn’t think of asking how you felt. I wanted to see if I can learn something from them. I also wanted to find the truth at all costs, it is dangerous and you are welcome to run as far as you from this place

Are you sure? You might have seen what your mind wants you to see and also live all the fun to you….well I am here out of free will and no I did know what I was getting into. My eyes were wide open and ready to jump into the sea with you ——

I am no fool, Fulrose. She held her gaze. Yes my memory might have had a glimpse but it was not false.

Nwe frowned. Okay carry on.

Well, it will not end well. All the different scenarios did come back with the same conclusion.

Okay show me and maybe we can see a different side this time together.

Walking into the unknown

'And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the Lord your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul. '

Deuteronomy 10:12

Life in the Unknown world continues… Welcome to the world of walking into unknown places and life is no different. Yet we seem to be surprised at what lies ahead.

What is happening now has happened before.

Nothing is new under the sun.

The story continues…

He shook with anger as he sinks into the dark emotion and he found that he could not be bothered with it right now. Letting the cloud over his mind as he moved closer to Kaih. 

Kaih could see the dark waves around Athan as he got closer, his hands shook. Getting the location was proving to be difficult with him so close.

When he finally got to see them…. This doesn’t look right at all, he thought. They were interested in his past and what they could possibly gain by going into his home town. Alarmed bells, at the implications. They could know a little about him and bring justice to the world. 

Kaih?

Looking down to see them enter the rooms.

Yes? What is it? He asked.

Did you find out anything? I need to get going if not and I will have to also get Cassa as a shield, he taught. He knew something was not right but could not be sure. He had been here before, and he wanted to avoid getting killed before completing the mission.

As Cassa finished both daggers, she needed to get out or fight. Was it too late, she was now in the deepest pool. Looking back, if they were right then the option was not running off wondering or sinking deep into the pool. She needs to stand and fight, but can she?

The chances are he will find her or they will and the choice will be taken away, meaning they made a choice and as she waded back to reality Athan was standing in front deep in thought and in darkness. It was time to make a choice. 

Is it complete? Athan moved closer, cautious than usual. 

She could tell he was wrestling with trusting her and took the dagger and handed it over.

Athen looked it over it was surprisingly very heavy and he saw the red gems glowed in his hands.

Is it …… ah! He drew his hand away

Yes, a gift, Cassa explained

Are you in a hurry to do anything else? As he regarded her.

No! As she continued to put everything away, slipping her dagger in to avoid being seen. 

I need you to follow me, we are going on a trip. Once they get there he will have to make sure that she stays close, Athan taught. 

You don’t look pleased to hear it, he observed. 

Cassa looked at Athan, then shook her head. ‘No.’

Why not?

I…. I don’t want to part of any more killing

Athan looked puzzled. You think that is what we are going to do.

‘Yes’… 

Is this a bad thing? Athan asked, shrugging. You cannot be protected by anyone but me. You are safer with me and than when we are apart. This is what we always do together. 

As he continued with words… They invaded us and brought the storm with them. None of this will have happened.

Ah, you’ve right. Lost in thought, they made the wind blow in the wrong direction. Memories of the crushing of the storm into the land as Athen tried to stop it. But that was a version that was not true. Athan carried the storm everywhere he went. This was a way to protect himself, caution will be needed going to this battle field. She needs to be armed and ready for anything.

Should we go now… surely this was about wars of sword and gaining strength. She wanted no part of it.
